The Startalk funded Chinese Dragon's Math Maze - Building Community through Kindness Program will enable approximately 100 children from the City of Springfield and some surrounding communities to receive introductory as well as ongoing instruction in Chinese Language and Culture from grades K-12 . The program will run daily from 8:30 to 2:30 for 15 days, for a total of 90 instructional contact hours from Monday, July 9th through Friday, July 27th, 2018. A pre-program, baseline assessment will determine students' prior knowledge and will be used for appropriate placement of students. While high school students will participate in the online Lingua Folio assessment, a culminating student performance activity for ALL students will serve as a summative outcome indicating mastery of math content and skills, as well as knowledge of language and culture.
